ABSTRACT
Hydatiform mole or cluster mole is a degenerative trophoblast disease with incidence of 1/ 1,500- 2,000 alive born children. Invasive mole occurs in 15% of all mole pregnancies and has a larger inclination towards invasive growing and spreading. Monitoring of chorion gonadotropin (HCG) serum level is the most specific predictor of the trophoblast disease stage. This report describes a case of 27-year-old patient with invasive mole of the inner uterine wall. The patient wished to keep her reproduction capability. The results of this report have shown that transvaginal sonography is a reliable method in diagnostics of the molar invasion of myometrium, and the treatment of the invasive mole without monohemotherapy can be fully successful in the firstst age of the diseasewith necessity of β-HCG monitoring and follow-up.
